Problem with HP pavillion

By rossol219 ·
trying to fix my uncles computer. when you turn it on it comes up
windows could not start because of an error in the software
load needed DLLs for kernel

so i loaded the windows disk and tried to recover and to reinstall windows when this didn't work.
each time it came up

check for new hardware /software
disable BIOS memory options caching shadowing.

my uncle said he doesn't remember installing anything so i tied to go into safe mode to see what was installed but it failed to load and the initial error came up.

does anyone have any ideas?
help appreciated

Hardware error?

by p.j.hutchison In reply to Problem with HP pavillion

This is caused by a bad driver or bad hardware such as either corrupted disk or bad memory. Try different memory sticks.
